For those Arabs born in the early 1950s no decade in their history passed off without any major event. The 1956 invasion of Suez by Israel, Britain and France referred to as the tripartite invasion. The June 1967 war in which a large chunk of Arab territory was seized by Israel. The October 1973 war in which the Egyptians challenged the myth of Israeli invincibility and had it not been for an active U.S. support the final outcome would have been totally different.
The latest crisis to test our will is the invasion of Gaza and the merciless bombing of a defenseless population.Khaled Almaeena
